The Waves Thursday at O’ Club kept trying to hit double overhead today, just like Wednesday, but only made it to the 3 foot overhead, with an occassional bigger set wave. I don’t think that it was as good as yesterday. The closeouts were a little more dominant, but because of the size, at least 100 yard rides were to be had, unlike the 1 and half to 2 football field rides that were for the taking if you waited 30 minutes for “That” wave on Wednesday at O’ Club.
Johnson Avenue was similar for closeouts and had some head high plus waves early, the Pier a little bigger. The considerable size difference we had both yesterday and today (Thursday) from the Cape on one end of the spectrum to Patrick and Satellite Beach allowed for the waves down South to hold up much longer for some really nice shoulders and some pretty intense power.
Katia is delivering it’s last real day of surf for us Friday. We should see waist-high at Canaveral , IF, it’s not blocked out by the Cape’s point sticking out into the Ocean. It ought to be chest to shoulder-high as you work your way toward Satellite Beach. The winds should be West switching to SW around noon or one, and then to SSW to onshore.
Maria looks to be sending us some swell Sunday thru Thursday, but keep in mind the models are still developing, and it is heading West so until it becomes a Cane, the models can diminish quite a bit.
Fun waves we’ve had huh, between Irene and Katia.
If you make it out Friday morning, have fun and take pictures and feel free to send them to me.
Thanks and have a great weekend!
